    I loose one set of lites. I used a 32x32 fixed window, 2x2 lites, no sill Arch= Dogear 16" with reflected Vert Full Arch and this is what i get
  2. I placed window in a wall then converted to symbol then i placed symbol in a new wall and opened symbol and rotated 45 degrees on Y axis Now how do i get rid of the wall and save symbol as just a window. or is there a better way to rotate a window

    Default siding shows up on to of inside walls

    That did the trick. One other issue i found is if i draw one of the walls right on the centerline of the roof it draws a top wall all the way across the building Only way i found to fix is go to atic in plan add break at corner and then make the bad piece invisible

Place to cameras on opposite diagonal corners 10. Walls may or may not have the original default “Blue Siding” or the default I selected “cream Board & Batton” it seems that if I draw walls CW they all end up as blue siding but if I draw them CCW the first wall is Blue siding and the rest are correct cream board 7 baton. 11. In camera view use Material Eye Dropper to sample a correct wall then use material painter to correct walls that have Blue Siding to Cream Board & batton 12. Save Plan 13.

In camera view use Material Eye Dropper to sample a correct Drywall wall then use material painter to correct walls that have exterior siding to be drywall I included the plans at different point in the process Wall Proble Rev A all walls corrected.plan Wall Proble Rev A Messed up 2 interior walls.plan Wall Proble Rev A.plan
  7. If I change the default siding on exterior walls and build a house with no flat ceiling then add interior walls i end up with the default (changed) exterior siding on the top of walls. if i do not change the default siding it puts drywall top and bottom depending on direction drawn the error occurs either inside the room or outside

    Vertical Spiral Duct

    yes but once you rotate it to be perpendicular to x,y plane then it no longer shows in plan view. also the orientation of the fitting is wrong in plan view

    Vertical Spiral Duct

    I am trying to insert a vertical piece of Spiral duct to go from floor to floor. i figured out how to do it using a 3dmolding line, adding the duct as a molding, then rotating 90 degrees to the x,y axis. duct shows in a 3d/camera view but it does not show in the plan view. if you drag select the area it is in it shows up as a square selection but you can not work with it such as adding fittings since it disappears as soon as you click on anything else. Is there a better way to create a vertical spiral duct, or a way to make it visible in plan view While it works it takes a long time to get things aligned. there has to be a better way.
